Jason Kander: Destigmatizing PTSD While Continuing to Serve

Jason Kander, an Army Veteran and former candidate for Senate in Missouri, talks about his struggle with PTSD and his continuing public service.

Jason served as an intel officer in Afghanistan and as Secretary of State of Missouri, before his Senate campaign in 2016 catapulted him onto the national stage. Despite an extremely promising mayoral race in Kansas City, he decided to step away from the public eye and focus on dealing with his PTSD. Now, he serves as the president of the Veteran’s Community Project.
